I have a latex allergy. I started using the Johnson & Johnson brand non-stick pads and when I took the bandages off the inflammation was almost exactly the shape of the bandages. I couldn't find anywhere on the package that they were latex-free so I just used some gauze my plastic surgeon gave me, wrapped up in an ace bandage and put the sports bra they gave me over that. I seemed to feel better for about an hour but about 30 minutes ago ALL of my incisions all over began to itch INTENSELY!
